Meet Micah Talley

Today we’d like to introduce you to Micah Talley. 

Micah, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Hi, I’m Micah Talley and I’m from Amarillo Texas. I grew up in a really small town, with my mom and my older sister. Growing up I always had a love for music. I think the first time I knew I could really sing was around age 10, because my family would always ask me to sing for them. I remember writing my first song when I was like 12 but I used to have really bad stage fright so I would never show anyone my music. until I just woke up one day and I was like “hey I’m actually pretty good at this, so there’s no reason for me to be scared”. From that point on I started modeling and acting for a local agency in Amarillo. And I got a voice coach and that helped me improve my voice a lot. My mom actually moved me to a different school my freshman year of high school, so that I could pursue choir and Theater; because my old school didn’t have that. I ended up doing choir, theater, and a little bit of show choir all throughout high school. I would also occasionally upload covers to youtube and SoundCloud but didn’t take it very seriously at the time. I’m currently attending The University of North Texas, and that’s how I got where I am right now. 

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
I grew up in a very country area but I’ve always had a love for rap and r&b. And let’s just say my family…wasn’t a fan. Sometimes it was hard to express myself because of the differences. The things that I wanted to write about or sing about, or even listen to. My family didn’t relate to or understand. But as of where I am now, everything has been pretty smooth. 

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
So, I’m a singer/songwriter/model. But I think of myself as an artist. My most recent accomplishment was opening for Annie DiRusso and The Greeting Committee for the NxNT music festival. It was such an awesome experience and me and my dancers had put so much effort into the show. I’ve never danced and sang at the same time on stage before, so it was also a check off the bucket list. 

I think something that sets me apart is that I always try to tell a story with my music. Sometimes I feel that some artists are just rambling with their lyrics. But I try my hardest to tell a story and make it make as much sense as possible. 

What was your favorite childhood memory?
I think my favorite childhood memory was when me and my sister would watch the country music video countdowns on tv. I just remember us singing along and having fun.
